About resistance\voltage (power) ratio.
Is it good to vape on it with, for example, 2 Ohms resistance and 5 or more volts (or 10-15W).
I am novice and I want to make it clear for me:

- coil life with this values?
- is it safe to vape with this values?
- will it produce a lot of vape?

Order it few days ago with Vamo V5
Thanks for help

- coil life with this values?
Depends more on the type of juice you vape, even if it doesn't last long wire is cheap anyways. I know that from my usage I tend to change coils every two months but usually more like every week since I want to try different coiling seups.
- is it safe to vape with this values?
I would go lower maybe 1.5ohm
- will it produce a lot of vape?
no it won't with the stock airhole, if you drill it out it will produce more but never really lots, especially at 15w

Those values are sensible, on the conservative side in fact. Your coil will last ages, as long as you can rewick. If you wind it around silica wick say then you'll have to replace the coil when the wick gets gunked up. A lot of vape? That's relative. 10-15 watts produces plenty of vapour (especially with higher VG): way more visible "smoke" than you'd get from a cigarette.

To calculate the voltage V across your coil from power P and resistance R:

V = sqrt(P x R)

where sqrt means square root. Also useful to know the current Ibat drawn from the battery:

Ibat = P / (Vbat x h)

where Vbat is your battery voltage and h is the efficiency of your regulated mod: say if it's 92% then put h = 0.92.

Or you can go to steam-engine.org to do more detailed calculations (it's very easy, all automated).
V = dU/dq | I = dq/dt | P = dU/dt = V·I | V = I·R

coldmantis, i was thinking about drilling a bigger size hole, yes.
whatever, thanks for your tips :)
i think, it will be helpful

I believe when I got my igo-L I drilled it out to maybe 1/16" or larger the second day, the stock airhole is comparable to a protank, you picked a great beginner dripper, this was my first one. Served me well and it' easy to build, don't ever lose that screw though to hold the wires. Took me 2 days to find

One more question.
About juices.
I know, it depends on vaping style, but how long I can vape adding 15 drops of juice?

+1 details
since it depends on vaping style that can't really by answered, it depends on how many watts your running it, how long drags, type of wicking material, how much wick material etc... and also I'm pretty sure that you can't fit 15 drops in the igo-L, I think maybe 8-10 max before it leaks from the airhole.

ok, done with these questions
thank you!

When a silica wick gets nasty, no need to replace it. Simply remove the cap and light the wick with a match. The gunk burns off leaving a nice, clean coil and wick. It's the ONLY thing I miss about silica wicks.

I run both of my Ls at around .2 ohms on a dual coil/single (large) air hole and they are fantastic in both flavor and vapor.
